AMESVILLE – After two months of speculation, the Moshannon Valley Board of Education voted Monday night to approve an agreement between the district and Superintendent Dr. Mike Slavinski.
The board held a trio of executive sessions prior to taking a vote on a motion suggested by the board’s legal representative.
The motion was to approve an agreement pending the execution of it by all parties.
Board Member Bob Holden was the only member to vote against the motion. Board Member Jonathan Ponist was absent.
Prior to voting, Holden said, “I am wholly in favor of Mike Slavinski not returning for the fall of the school year.” However, he said he was not in agreement with the document the board approved.
Board Member Rose Holenchik said she reluctantly gave her approval to the motion.
Following the meeting, Board President Scott Magnetti said he could not comment on why the agreement was reached.
Slavinski was placed on paid administrative leave in April.
Magnetti did say, however, that no criminal proceedings were pending in the matter.
Slavinski had been in the second year of a five-year contract.
The board did not name a permanent replacement for Slavinski, but Magnetti said Dr. Jack Cunning will continue to be the district’s acting superintendent for the time being.
